    Gross Domestic Product is the name of Banksy’s new online store. From what I understand, he had to do it to keep his name from being taken and trademarked by a different company.

    I really like his work. I went to an exhibition of his in Amsterdam. I’d love to own a piece but I don’t have the money to spend. Well, maybe if I did a clearance sale...

    yeah he's a very clever lad. I like his style and grace.
    When I find a piece of art that he has done, I download it from google images into my portable museum / gallery

    I loved that thing he did where, when a painting (print?) of his was sold, a hidden shredder in the frame was activated to destroy it. Unfortunately, it got stuck part way through, but cool idea.

    I liked that, too. He did another living art piece where he had an old guy set up a street kiosk where the old man was selling Banksy prints at $60 each. The thing was, they were originals. I think the old guy sold three and two of them to the same person who paid $120 for two original Banksy prints.

    When I first saw this thread I visualized ”Koons” who is a huckster I reluctantly admire for vacuuming large sums of money off of rich “art”- loving rubes.

    Not the same.

    Banksy’s cool though.
